I figured that mower shops wouldn't have them, but thought I would give it a shot since this is pretty much a weed wacker engine. :p

Okay, so I remeasured the squish and averaged about .47mm....

Great info! Thank you.

hmmm...maybe after torquing it, the gasket maker just got that much thinner, which is causing my "extra" compression. I will have to do a reread before I start it up and...

Redcat Rampage MT Hitec HS805MG steering servo

I know that this servo is not a direct fit in the MT, so what mods have to be done to make it fit? I have the dual servo set-up. The right servo can get mounted to the chassis because there are two...

Tighten it down all the way and then loosen it 1/4 of a turn. You do not want it locked down, as that will cause premature wear and/or damage to your drive train in the long run.

Aren't they 1.2 volt cells? Why is it a 8.4v battery then?

Either way, I assume that the 8.4 battery still provides more speed than the 7.2 battery, correct? So is it safe to assume that two 8.4...

Do NOT get a metal spur gear. I have run plastic on all of my savages with no problems. Just set the mesh right and you will be good. If anything were to strip, I would rather have a $4 spur gear,...

RE: clutch bell vented vs non vented

Vented, period.

Keeps the shoes cool, less rotating mass, won't keep debris in the bell.

As for performance, if a different filter allows more air in, then I would assume that it is more vulnerable to allowing debris in as well. You...
